To put it simply, Zapier is an application that allows you to send information between web apps and create automatic processes so that you can save time.
Gmail, MailChimp, Facebook, Evernote, ToDoist, Quickbooks and now BookingSync are some of the apps that you can integrate Zapier with.
BookingSync is the first vacation rental partner to be integrated with Zapier, allowing users to connect their BookingSync account to 750+ other apps and bring the vacation rental process to a countless automated workflow.
For instance, property managers can create forms for customers to send booking inquiries, follow up with new leads automatically, or engage with customers using any of their favorite apps.
How does it work?
Zapier offers a connection service that allows one event in BookingSync to trigger an action in a third party application. This has an impact on several aspects of the vacation rental business such as accounting, marketing (SMS, Newsletter…), CRM and so on.
